UFC 278: Usman vs. Edwards 2 Betting Odds, Picks, Predictions

We have another massive fight night on August 20 for UFC 278. Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards is the main event, and Paulo Costa vs. Luke Rockhold is the co-main.

This fight night is taking place at the Vivint Arena at Salt Lake City, Utah. In this MMA betting preview, I’ll be sharing my best bets, expert picks and predictions for UFC 278. I have sharp bets from OddsJam!

Yanan Wu vs. Lucie Pudilova Odds, Picks, Predictions

Bantamweight

The first fight I have bet on is Yanan Wu vs. Lucie Pudilova. I think this pick is one of the top MMA bets for UFC 278, and it’s in the Bantamweight division of the WMMA.

I’m on Yanan Wu at +128 moneyline odds on FanDuel sportsbook. Early sports betting line movement has moved lines towards Wu. The moneyline odds for Yanan Wu vs. Lucie Pudilova can be seen in the screenshot above. There’s clear value on Wu at +128 moneyline odds, and I found this UFC bet on the OddsJam Positive EV Betting Tool.

I locked in this moneyline play for $150, and my betslip is below.

Leonardo Santos vs. Jared Gordon Odds, Picks, Predictions

Lightweight

The next bet I have for August 20 is in the Lightweight division. I have a prop bet for Leonardo Santos vs. Jared Gordon. My MMA pick for this fight is another mathematically profitable, Positive EV bet from OddsJam.

The odds for the “Total Rounds” in Leo Santos vs. Jared Gordon can be seen in the screenshot above. FanDuel is offering +126 odds on the under 2.5 total rounds. That’s an incredible price. In fact, FanDuel is the only sportsbook offering odds above +115.

I love the value in this play and tried to lock it in for $500. Unfortunately, FanDuel capped my maximum wager size to $39.70. I guess the Positive EV Betting Tool is beating them up a bit too hard! Regardless, I locked in this sharp UFC bet from OddsJam, and my betslip is below. Best of luck if tailing!

Aoriqileng vs. Jay Perrin Odds, Picks, Predictions

Bantamweight

The next fight I have bet in is Aoriqileng vs. Jay Perrin. I’m on Jay Perrin at +126 moneyline odds on FanDuel sportsbook. This is another sharp bet from OddsJam, and my betslip is below. I played this UFC pick for $158.70. Once again, this was the maximum wager that FanDuel allowed (similar to the previous bet). I love the value in this play.

Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards Odds, Picks, Predictions

Welterweight

The main event in UFC 278 on Saturday, August 20 is Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards. This is a rematch fight. In their first bout, Usman defeated Edwards by unanimous decision.

Leon Edwards likely won the first round in their previous fight, but Usman was too much for Edwards down the stretch. All judges scored the fight 10-9 in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

The current moneyline odds for Usman vs. Edwards are below. Usman is best offered at -360 moneyline odds on DraftKings sportsbook. Edwards is also best offered on DraftKings, and he’s priced at +295 moneyline odds. Shout out to DraftKings for having the lowest juice on their UFC betting lines!

Although I don’t have an official bet on Usman vs. Edwards 2, I’d lean to bet Usman by decision. I think that the fight will be competitive, but Usman has the clear advantage in my opinion. Granted, I have no intentions of betting Usman at -360 odds (e.g. staking $360 to win $100 in profit).
